I am adding a new section to this site. (See top menu) It is where I will be posting my reviews and other bs at.  I have two sections so far: Netflix Reviews and IPAD Time Waster Games. I will be adding more to this section fairly often in the next coming weeks as most of it is already written. (about 100 lolz.)  Categories to come are: YouTube Melts My Mind – which will be a mixture of videos/people I like and other things that I’m sure somebody was on acid when they made it.  I know this isn’t really an interactive site but if you wanted to contact me with a category, you would like me to toss in the mix – I sure would like to hear from you.   See contact form below.

I suppose I should have a disclaimer so some hipster doesn’t get up in my shit.  My quote aka disclaimer: “My opinion and advice is shit at best. Please, lower your expectations and do not believe at any point in time now or in the future will I provide valuable reading material.  Thank you.” end quote / disclaimer. 

What I have posted so far:

Conan Exiles: Changing pet names

A guide to change pet names and why you should.

BDO: What I wish I knew in the beginning.

Black Desert Online: Tips & What I wish I knew at the beginning:

 

This game is so vast and there is so much to do.  It really is impossible to do everything.

I have been playing for 2 years and have not even done a 1/3 of it yet.

Don’t get overwhelmed by it all and take it slow.

Trying to do everything at once will only achieve burn out.

Get a pet.

If you purchase anything from the Pearl shop, then a pet is a must.

Occasionally, you can get a free pet from the Daily attendance but it is not every month.

You have little hope of ever purchasing a pet off the marketplace.

You can have up to 5 pets out at one time.

Pets pick up your loot and give you bonuses for combat and life skills. (Loot = Money/Silver)

Pearl Shop is a rip off.

Everything is way over price.

Pearl shop does have sales and coupons every once in a while.

Try out different characters first to see which ones you like the best before buying character items in the pearl shop.

If you ever have to delete a character, some of those pearl items will not transfer to other characters.

Fishing

Fishing is the best way for a beginner to earn lots of silver.

You can AKF fish and still earn silver.

PVP

PVP begins at level 50.

You don’t have to PVP.

Other players can kill you in combat areas even if you do not have PVP activated. (Only after level 50)

You can lose experience when you die.

Some of the crystals might break in  your weapons and armor if you die.

Awakening

Awakening begins at level 56

You cannot add crystals to your awakening weapon.

Horse

Buy a horse as soon as possible. Does not need to be expensive or high tier.

It will be too difficult and time consuming to run everywhere.

Quests

Do the Black Spirit quests.

Those quests will reward you with inventory slots and combat experience.

Black Spirit quests need to be done in order to unlock other quests.

Do not sell!

Black Stones

Memory Fragments

You will need a shit ton of these to level up weapons and armor.

I do not recommend selling items from rewards or events until you are sure what they are.

Rewards

You are rewarded the longer you stay on the server even if you are AFK.

You are rewarded for having multiple characters.

These are actually encouraged in this game.

Characters

It is best to have one main fighting character and make the additional characters geared towards life skills.

Reason is because leveling up weapon and armor is very expensive and a long drawn out process.

Characters part two

Not all characters are created equal.

I do not recommend making the “Ranger” character your first one.

The “Ranger” is difficult to level up and cannot combat mobs like the other characters.

The ranger is a good character but it is not a killing machine.

Good beginning characters: Striker, Dark Knight, and Tamer. (Only my opinion)

Characters part three

Your character name can be important.  Depending on what you name your character will be the deciding factor whether you get killed a lot or not.

I named one of my character after a venereal disease and people are constantly trying to kill me.

There has been a few guilds that have refused to let me join over the character’s name.

Changing a character or family name will cost you actual money from the Pearl Shop.

So choose wisely! Unless, you like being verbally abused, trolled and even killed.

Pay to Win

BDO has a lot of high priced crap in their pearl shop but the game is not pay to win.

BDO is one huge sandbox and there is no winning scenario.

You can buy stuff that will give you extra boosts but you can also obtain that without spending real money.

High powered weapons, armor and other things, you will have to actually work for it.

Beginner Weapons & Armor

You will get beginner weapons and armor from starter quests.

Do not level these up.  It is a waste of black stones.

You cannot re-sell these on the marketplace.

Olvia servers (It is Olvia not Olivia)

You can only play on the Olvia servers if you are new and for up to 30 days.

Join those servers for the max allowed time.

Olvia servers give you extra experience that will help you level up.

Server Switching

You can switch servers every 15 minutes.

This is handy if you somebody is bothering you or you are in an overcrowded location.

Guilds

It’s not necessary to join a guild to play the game.

If you do join a guild – there are PVP and PVE guilds.

Joining a guild does provide you with extra perks and boosts.

Crystals

Grind unused cheap crystals and turn them into black stone powder.

You will need lots of this powder for various projects / crafting.

Chat

Some of the server chat is cancer.

You can turn off certain chats and even make the window smaller so that it is less distracting.

You can mute people in chat.

Notifications

There are a lot of notifications in BDO that automatically show up on default.

It’s annoying and distracting.  You can turn off the majority of them in your settings.

Family Funds

BDO gives you daily funds.

The amount of funds depend on all your characters combined combat, knowledge and life skill levels.

I have 6 characters between the levels of 56 and 59.  I get over million of silver per day.

Repair

If you need to repair your weapons or armor and there is not a blacksmith around, look for a stable.

Stable personnel will also make repairs.

Life skills

Easy life skills for beginners:  Fishing, Cooking, Alchemy, Farming, Gathering, Processing and Trading.

More difficult life skills: Horse Training, Sailing and Hunting.

AFK life skills: Fishing, Cooking, Alchemy, Processing and Horse Training.

Knowledge

Pressing “H” brings up your knowledge screen.

The more knowledge you obtain thru quests or other means will equal more energy for your character /family.

Contribution Points:

You need contribution points for a house, extra storage, worker crafting stations and unlocking nodes.

BDO: PRO TIP – Fishing

BDO: Fishing Pro Tip

If you often leave your character on (while AFK) fishing then you definitely need to try out this location.

There is a little pond just outside of Duvencrune. (See Picture)  There is an NPC located there that has a daily quest.

In this repeat quest, all you need to do is catch a “Korean Loach” fish and you are rewarded with 400 contribution experience.

If you are going to be AFK fishing, you might as well get some contribution experience from it too.  Right around the corner from this pond, is a trader, blacksmith, storage and central market.

You can sell your fish, repair your rod and put your money in storage.

This location is never super crowded and nothing troll-ish happens there.  In a few hours, I usually catch close to two million worth in silver. I will also get ancient relic crystal shards with a minimum of 1 but I have got as many as 12 before.

Gear & Stats

Fishing Master 8

7+ Epheria Fishing Rod

6+ Maple Float

1+ Fishing outfit

Fishing Rods:

If you have a couple of choices with fishing rods but for long AFK fishing, I prefer Epheria.  You can repair it and use it over and over.

I bought an upgraded one off marketplace and at 7+, this rod has 120 durability.  The float helps catch better more expensive fish.

The fishing outfit gives me experience to level up in fishing.  I’m debating whether to buy a higher grade outfit but not sure it’s worth the money.

*I usually buy upgraded items instead of upgrading them myself.  I do not want to lose the black stones or break the item. Sometimes, it just cost more to upgrade an item then to simply buy it off marketplace.

Black Desert: Pro Tip (To ease the pain of leveling to 60)

Recently, I have leveled up one of my characters to the 59 and it’s been quite painful trying to get her to 60.  I have been fighting monster after monster, mob after mob, until my tiny gamer fingers went numb.  So I grew weary of fighting.  I sat depressed on the side of the road watching other happy gamers go by.  I started to do a few quests to fill the void and to my surprise BDO has added massive amounts of combat experience to all these quests.  I spent two hours today doing all these random quests.  I started out at 35%.  See pictures below.

About an hour later, as you can see in this screenshot, I’m at 58.219 %

Another hour after that, I’m at 78.300%

Normally, this would have taken me weeks of fighting mobs to level up to this percent and I’m assuming BDO is adding combat experience in these quests to encourage people to do them. It is working, BDO!  I definitely want to do some random quests!  Never before had I had this much enjoyment from talking to NPC and basically, being their gimp for two hours. I have no idea how long BDO will keep the combat experience in these quests but if you need to level up a little quicker, I really suggest doing a few.

PRO TIP:  DO THE QUESTS!

 

Update (07/08/19)

I did reach level 60 the same day as the post above.  I found that certain areas did have quests with better combat experience as rewards.   This tended to be new areas like: Grana,Stars End, Brelin Farms, Duvencrune & surrounding areas.  If I went to Heidel or Veila, the quests did have combat experience but did not have as much as the new areas.  From each quest, I was gaining 2 to 3 % experience.  I also killed about 600 blue man dogs (Fabus) to compare if combat would give me more experience but it did not.   I think after killing all the dirty dogs, I went up less than 1 %. So the quests are quicker and more experience.

I also found that quests with the book beside them offered better combat experience.   There were a lot of repeat quests that did not have the combat experience but there were quite a few that did.  I skipped the ones that had no experience as a reward.   I’m not sure about the Black Spirit quests because I had completed the majority of those already.
